Does anyone know how to meet your ancestors?

Excellent blog posts here,
This is my preferred method.
And an interesting article here
This is a meditation I have used before and found it helpful https://youtu.be/XTBMVajj94U .
I have connected (very strongly) with my great grandmother and honour her by displaying her photograph and leaving offerings beside it. The offerings are based on things she liked (a cigarette and a glass of gin) and flowers (she was in the theatre so was often presented with flowers).
It can be a very profound and healing practice, once you get the general outline of ancestral work, you can make it your own. There are no right or wrong ways of doing it.
Just remember to be respectful and thank your ancestors for their energy.
